There he goes again...

The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled goalie Corey Crawford from the Rockford IceHogs this evening. Dale Tallon made the announcement, noting that Nikolai Khabibulan had suffered back spasms during practice this morning.

The IceHogs said Crawford has appeared in 46 American Hockey League games for Rockford this season, posting 2 shutouts and a record of 24-15-5. Crawford has a 90.9 save percentage and a 2.78 GAA. He was the backup goalie for Patrick Lalime in a 6-1 Blackhawks victory over the Nashville Predators on February 14th. He did not miss any games with the IceHogs.

Michael Brodeur was recalled from the Pensacola Ice Pilots to replace Crawford. Brodeur has appeared in 20 Ice Pilots games, posting a record of 7-7-4. He has a 91.1 save percentage and a 3.16 GAA. He also played four frames for the IceHogs this season, posting a 94.4 save percentage and a GAA of 2.25.

Last season, when Brodeur was loaned to the Norfolk Admirals, then the Blackhawks AHL affiliate, he played ten games, posting a record of 4-3-0. His save percentage was 89.1 with a 3.39 GAA.
